Finding a good avocado was impossible.  They were all too hard.

It seemed to be an explicit rule when he wanted to make guac

Robust testing of this idea had been happening over the past ten years to prove it

Making all the businesses between him and the avocado tree suspect of conspiring

Cub (an acrostic poem)

Cuddly little bear tried to scare him, but he laughed

Until mamma poked her head out to see what was going on

Been up that tree for the past four hours.  Who is laughing now?

Journey (an acrostic poem)

Jamming on her brakes, Salama looked to her left where she saw whitewater far below

Oddly the sound reminded her of the ocean, but more chaotic, capturing the wildness it passed through

Under normal circumstances, she would want to continue the climb to the top

Reality the water called to her spirit so she began to descend

Navigating downward on tree roots and small rock outcrops she got closer to her goal

Eventually dipping her toes into that white foam and the crisp water underneath.

Yet that water was too cold to do more, so she climbed back up with a satisfied grin

Unusual Love (100 words of weirdness)

The car wept radiator fluid as it lay broken after trying to wrap itself around the tree.  The tree bent forward; its branches tenderly caressing the top of its crumpled one night stand.  Two things, one created and one grown, found a moment of love in time of tragedy.  As the snow draped the scene in a mind numbing white blanket, the only person to witness the joining of tree and car gently cooled; his last thoughts were of love and love lost.  The tree finished collapsing onto the car as sirens in the far distance wailed for the tragedy.
